MERRY CHRISTMAS!

We had a special visitor during our family party at our house!
Santa brought everyone a gift.


Caden was so scared of Santa. He would start shaking when he would get close to him!

We read from the scriptures about our Saviors birth while the children acted it out. Orion sang a solo while Grandma played the piano and Grandpa played the guitar.




Corbin was Joseph , Mckayla was Mary, Jacob was baby Jesus, Orion, Devon and Caden were Wise men, Titan was a Shepherd (peanut was his sheep) and Melissa was an angel.











Our little Wise man!





Christmas morning!




Corbin asked Santa for tools.



Corbin with his trophy from Titan.



Orion with his best brother pen and dinosaur bone.



Caden opening his stocking.





Our house will never be the same. It is covered with toys!



Caden's first Christmas!




Before the kids got to the tree!






Here they are waiting at the top of the stairs EARLY in the morning!





Christmas eve right before bed time, we tracked Santa to see where he was. He was in Canada .
We had so much fun. I am so thankful to celebrate my Saviors birth with my family. This year there was a lot of thought put into each gift. Our boys worked off money to spend at the Kid's holiday store at their school. We had no idea what they bought. Each gift was so special and they were so excited to GIVE this year. I found so much joy in watching them give each other their gifts and then hug each other . Shay always spoils me, but this year he did something so sweet. He wrapped a card ,he had wrote a very special letter in, in a big box full of lots of heavy stuff. I had no idea there was a card in there. He spent a lot of time writing a very special letter to me. Also inside the card was 2 gift certificates. One for Chilli's (date night) and one for Old Navy. He also got me other things,but this topped the list by far. What a special guy he is! His kinds words were the greatest gift he could have ever given me. I am so thankful to know I have a Savior and to be able to teach my children about Him. It was a great day at the Young's house!
Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!
